Kaley Cuoco Covers Up Failed Marriage ... With New Ink

11/24/2015 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


Kaley Cuoco opted for another tattoo instead of laser removal when getting the giant reminder of her soon-to-be ex-husband Ryan Sweeting removed from her back.

Cuoco had the giant Roman numerals of their wedding date covered up with what looks like a giant butterfly tattoo. She posted a pic of the finished ink and she said there was no real meaning to the design ... but she seems to be experiencing some kind of metamorphosis.  

We're told Cuoco came into the tattoo parlor Tuesday on a whim and was there for about an hour getting the ink.

She paid about $150 for it  ... probably a lot less than the checks she'll be paying Sweeting once the divorce is finalized.



Kylie Jenner Takes Aim with Tattoo Gun ... Major Health Dept. Violation

Exclusive Details

Kylie Jenner went out and got a tattoo artist license -- is what you might think after watching this video, but she didn't ... and now a NYC tattoo shop could be in big trouble. 

Kylie hit up Bang Bang Tattoos and got some fresh ink -- carefully placed on her ass/hip area. Totally kosher. The problem is KJ also took control of the ink at one point. 

She posted a video of herself handling the tattoo gun, and tatting a crown and a "K" on the artist's leg. The artist fully consented, but it's a Health Dept. violation to let an unlicensed person operate the gun.

The NYC Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene is aware of Kylie's video, and we're told Bang Bang will at least get a warning -- and possibly a hefty fine. Penalities can be anywhere from $300 to $1,000. 


VH1's 'Black Ink' Cops Yell, 'Cut!!' We're Arresting Your Star

11/10/2015 6:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110-ceasar-emanuel-instagramOne of the tattoo artists on VH1's "Black Ink" had to unhand a customer's ass to surrender to cops ... who busted him right in the middle of a shoot in NYC.

TMZ has learned Ceaser Emanuel was arrested Monday evening on a warrant for failure to pay child support. Witnesses in the Black Ink Tattoo Studio tell us Ceaser was putting a fresh piece on a female client's butt when the cops showed up.

We're told Ceaser's co-star Dutchess followed him down to the police station ... with the show's cams rolling. It's unclear if Ceaser -- who's got a rep for being an a**hole (it's even tatted on him) -- posted bail.

Rich Homie Quan I Love Pablo Escobar's Hustle ... Not His Killer Methods

11/4/2015 3:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rich Homie Quan got his Pablo Escobar tattoo out of respect for the late drug lord's business sense ... not because he happened to ruthlessly kill people while making his billions. 

Quan set the record straight while hanging with celeb jeweler AD Killa Ink -- telling us the good Escobar did for Colombia outweighs the bad ... as in the countless casualties of his drug operation.

He points out Escobar pulled in $60 mil in ONE day, so he deserves props and a place on Quan's arm. Watch his full explanation. Ends justify the means?

Blac Chyna Sharpie Talk All For Show Future Ink Is Permanent

Exclusive Details

1029-blac-chyna-tattoo-artist-INSTAGRAM-01Blac Chyna is trying to convince the world her Future tattoo isn't the real deal -- that it's just a Sharpie drawing -- but we have the proof it's 100% authentic.

Chyna and her friends posted a video on Snapchat Wednesday night where they all had "Blac Chyna" written on their hands in Sharpie, and then she asked followers to do the same in solidarity.

But she ain't fooling us. TMZ has obtained a set of photos that show Future's tattoo artist, Steve Wiebe, inking the couple together several weeks ago ... just as we first reported.

We're told Chyna is pretending the tattoo never existed because she's hurt after Future publicly humiliated her by tweeting his single status. Chyna was under the impression they'd been dating exclusively for over a month. 



David Beckham My Kids Don't Write on Walls ... THEY WRITE ON ME!

10/29/2015 8:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1029-david-beckham-tattoos-instagramDavid Beckham isn't just a beautiful man, he's a beautiful canvas for kids ... whose doodles just became his latest tattoos.

Becks showed off his fresh ink -- a drawing on his hand by daughter Harper and a "We love you Daddy" scribbled by his boys on his ribs. DB already has a ton of tatts, but bragged about these ... "Apparently Harper is allowed to scribble on daddy" and "The boys expressing how they feel about daddy."

Go ahead and pickup "Celebrity Father of the Year" award now, while we admire your body of work.



Khloe Kardashian No Place in My Life for Tramps

9/4/2015 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Khloe Kardashian has deep love for her dad, but she's glad he's finally getting off her butt.

Khloe posted a video of a laser removing the "Daddy" ink honoring her late father Robert Kardashian. Nothing against her pops ... just the geography.

It'll take 7-12 trips to the removalist for the whole thing to disappear.

She better get started on that Lamar ink on her wrist ... STAT!


Safaree Samuels NO TRACE of Nicki ... On My Bod [TMZ TV]

9/2/2015 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nicki Minaj’s ex Safaree Samuels has finally removed the last of his ginormous Nicki tattoos, possibly because he realized having a shrine to your ex on your chest won't help ya pick up new chicks.

His only other option was dating Nicki's twin sister -- who doesn't exist ... so, yeah. Bye, bye tatts!tmz-on-tv-3

Chris Brown Completed Head Tattoo ... It's In the Stars!

8/27/2015 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-chris-brown-instagram-01Chris Brown's decided one ridiculously large tattoo on his cabeza isn't enough -- unveiling the sequel to his Greek/Roman goddess ink, but this time his inspiration seems more obvious. 

CB got a big ole bull inked right next to the Venus de Milo(ish?) chick he got the other day, and captioned his Instagram ... "I do what the f**k I want!"

We don't know if Chris is big on astrology, but he IS a Taurus ... so the bull makes as much sense as a head tatt possibly can.

At this point, even Mike Tyson is cringing.


Chris Brown Now Two-Faced

8/25/2015 6:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Chris Brown got himself a fresh new haircut ... to clear a path for what looks like a Greek goddess. Some people in the office think it's Venus de Milo. Others are wondering who Venus de Milo is.

Chris clowned with his pals and worked on a song while the artist, King Rico, inked him up.


Kobe vs. Michael Going Head-to-Head Again ... On Some Dude's Calves

8/20/2015 1:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819_kobe_jordan_tattoo_twitterMichael Jordan or Kobe Bryant -- the epic GOAT debate can finally be settled thanks to some guy who LOVES basketball ... but makes poor decisions when it comes to tattoos.

Gotta love our friends over at BSO for pointing out this artwork -- a random hoops fan must have wanted to commemorate the 1991 NBA Finals ... so he tatted Kobe on one calf and MJ on the other.

Props to the artist, because the likeness is spot on. The ink also includes, "I love this game."

We're thinking the owner needs to love himself a little more. Those things are NOT gonna age well, bruh.

Shia LaBeouf All Eyez On My... New Tupac Tattoo

8/14/2015 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0814-shia-labeouf-tupac-tattoo-akmgsiShia LaBeouf's love of rap music just reached a new height -- his upper, inner thigh.

A scruffy Shia took a stroll in L.A. and showed off some new ink that looks like a janky nod to Tupac Shakur. 'Pac famously had "Thug Life" tatted across his abs ...  just like the shirtless character now above LaBeouf's left leg.

The tatt doesn't exactly do Pac justice ... can't tell if that's a mole or an attempt to illustrate Pac's gunshot wound to the chest.

California Love.
